Amazing layout, views and location
We recently spent a week at Balcones and loved it. The property exceeded all expectations. It is situated on three levels with views with multiple indoor and outdoor fireplaces. Indoor spaces included a master with his/hers bathrooms, three other guests rooms with en suite baths, a warm personal sit down kitchen, large dining room, an office, and a large comfortable living room with slouchy comfortable furniture. Everything is warmly and comfortably decorated with regional and vintage pieces as well as some of the most amazing artwork imaginable. Televisions in every room. Outdoor spaces included gardens and dining terraces overlooking San Miguel with amazing views and a hugely inviting outdoor pool area. We were there when it was cooler, so we didn't make use of the pool, but we did sit outside on that level enjoying the sun. There is also a small fitness room with a spin bike, an elliptical and free weights.
The location is just on the edge of the vital downtown area, about a five block walk up or down hill. The streets in San Miguel are large cobblestones, so if you aren't fond of walking up or down on that sort of terrain, taxis are cheap and plentiful and arrive promptly when called. There is another comment I want make about the villa and San Miguel. The security system at the villa with a locked entry make you feel totally secure. But the other thing about San Miguel is it feels like a very safe city. No touts and no unsavory characters lingering around street corners. Even late at night the streets are peaceful. We walked home late at night and never ever felt compromised.
My last comment is about the staff. The cook is incredible and prepares local cuisine as well as any requests, and housekeeping, laundry and gardening services are ongoing and are taken care of unobtrusively. Some of the staff speaks English and can help arrange for drivers, etc.
This was our first trip to San Miguel and Balcones, but it won't be our last. My only regret is I didn't have more time to shop.
The most amazing property I ever seen.
Love the location and the impressing art found all over the house.
The service us tip of the line, Trini, Sergio, Andrea, and every one else were so amazing and personal.
Thank you very much.
Thank-you for your kind remarks regarding our home. We strive to make the home comfortable but intricately decorated, and our staff will do their best to make your stay memorable. Of course, we are always looking for ways to improve if you have any suggestions. Again, thanks for your comments and for taking the time to write them.
Fabulous House with stunning views
This house has it all. Beautiful accommodations, living room, study, private dining room, gymnasium, swimming pool, and beautiful outdoor entertaining areas. Fabulous collections of art and folk art. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The house is in a quiet neighborhood. Yet the house is very close to the center of San Miguel. It is a super house to enjoy San Miguel with friends and family.
Very beautiful home and views in a very Mexican style
We have rented homes in San Miguel a number of times, and this house is easily our favorite. It is a very comfortable Mexican style oriented around beautiful outdoor spaces. The focus is around the west-facing terrace that provides a 30-mile view. The location is high on the hillside in Balcones.
The staff is wonderful and helpful, and Trini is a really great cook. Anything you ask, they'll happily take care of.
Separate bathrooms in the master suite, US/Canada TV, wifi, very nice workout room, purified water. Check the pictures.
Downstairs is another complete outdoor area by the pool, including a bar. Fantastic place to entertain. The entire house is full of beautiful artwork and Mexican folk art. Ten minute downhill walk to the Jardin.
Er zijn tal van kunstgalerijen in de stad en verschillende musea, evenals uitstekende restaurants, sommige met bekroonde chef-koks uit Mexico City.
De kerken in de stad zijn mooi, maar de must-see is de kerk in Atotonilco. De stad Atotonilco ligt op 20 minuten van het huis. De kerk is meer dan 250 jaar oud en is een wonder; het is een koloniale Sixtijnse kapel met fresco's geschilderd op de plafonds en muren. Het heeft het meest hartverscheurende beeld van Jezus die pijn leed toen hij op weg was naar de kruisiging. Tijdens de Mexicaanse revolutie werd het vaandel van de Maagd de Guadalupe door de boeren meegenomen en meegenomen voor heilige bescherming.
In 1996 noemde American Express het een van de 100 meest bedreigde archeologische vindplaatsen ter wereld. American Express heeft een fonds opgericht om de sites te herstellen en te behouden. De fresco's van de kerk zijn ongelooflijk gerestaureerd, een proces dat meer dan tien jaar heeft geduurd.
